Where in the World Are Designers Looking for Trends?

Ok, so that may have a few too many syllables to fit into Carmen San Diego’s theme song, but if you try hard enough you can kind of force it.

We’re halfway through London Fashion Week now, and I’m still looking for a distinct trend for geographical influences. Across the board there have been many collections with obvious references – India at Neem Khan, China at Jason Wu, Japan at Proenza Schouler – but nothing has really stood out  as a repeating trend. I’ll continue to keep my eye out, but for now here are two other countries to draw inspiration from.

Christian Cota showed a small collection with rich textures, patterns, and colors inspired by Mexico back in New York Fashion Week:

Temperley London showed a Russian collection that struck an interesting balance between folkloric references and the details of a soldiers’ uniform. I need one of those hats!
